LUFC Lees earns England call-up
Leeds United defender Tom Lees has been called up to the England under 21 squad.
The side managed by Stuart Pearce travel to Azerbaijan on Thursday night before a home clash with Norway next Monday at Chesterfield`s Proact Stadium.
England are currently two points ahead of Norway in their group as they attempt to qualify for the 2013 finals in Israel.
The 21 year old has been an almost ever-present for Leeds since breaking into the first team at the start of last season.
Lees has come through the Leeds academy system and he enjoyed successful season long loans at both Accrington Stanley and Bury before breaking into the Leeds side at the start of the 2010/11 season.
The young defender has been in great form already this season and is striking up a good partnership at the heart of the Leeds defence with Jason Pearce.
As well as defending well, he has already found the net twice at the other end with goals against Blackpool and Oxford United.
Lees joins Aidy White, Ross McCormack and Rodolph Austin on international duty.
